Ghanaian Sign Language

Accessing Scripture in their sign language

Ghanaian Sign Language

Project Description

Attending church can be challenging for Ghanaian Deaf people.

The rows of seats typically found in churches limit their ability to see a signed message. Even when they can see, the teaching is typically delivered in a signed version of English rather than the local sign language they understand clearly.

So when the Ghanaian Deaf first gained access to Bible stories in their sign language, they couldn’t get enough. “It is easy for us to understand!” they said. And they asked for more Scripture to be translated.

Ghanaian Sign Language Bible translators are now eager to complete 19 chapters of the Gospel of Luke.

Produced as videos, the Scripture portions will explore topics such as spiritual growth and sharing the gospel message. These passages will also help church leaders edify and encourage the Deaf Christians in their communities.

Your prayers and gifts will help the Ghanaian Deaf gain access to more of God’s Word in their sign language!


Funds in excess of the current need will be applied to a similar project or to future needs within the same project.
